Parent Links 

Parental engagement has a large and positive impact on children’s learning. We have a number of ways in which you can stay informed and work with us to improve your child’s progress:

 

                 PARENT APP
 

The Parent app enables you to access achievement, progress, attendance and assessment information. You can also update personal information about your child using the data collection link. As a school this will enable us to improve how we engage with you and to assist you in supporting your child’s progress.

Registering for the Parent app

If you have not already registered your interest or have not received an email regarding the Parent app please contact the school who will issue a form for you to complete. Once you have completed the form please return it to school.

Installing  the Parent app

From your smartphone or tablet, download the app from the Google Play or Apple App store - search for SIMS Parent. From a PC or Windows phone, click the parent app logo below.
 

               PARENT PAY 
 

ParentPay offers you the freedom to make payments whenever and wherever you like, safe in the knowledge that the technology used has the highest internet security available. You have a secure online account, with a unique user ID and password. You can change these to something you will easily remember and merge accounts of 2 or more children.

Making a payment is easy and simple. ParentPay holds an electronic record of your payments to view at a later date. No card details are stored in any part of the system. You can make online payments for school meals straight away. Please click on the link opposite, enter your username and password today.

                       PARENTVIEW
 

Parent View gives you the chance to tell Ofsted what you think about your child’s school, from the quality of teaching to dealing with bullying and poor behaviour. The survey can be completed at any time; you don’t have to wait until the school is being inspected.

                 SHOW MY HOMEWORK
 

The ease-of-use and accessibility gives students a clear picture, allowing them to prioritise their workload and stay organised using their personalised calendar, to-do list and email reminders.

We like to ensure you that homework is set effectively across the school, with statistics available by year, class, teacher and subject. Teachers set homework in advance, using an abundance of resources, and even automatic grading.

For parents who wish to take a more active role in their children’s home learning, they can by having their own Show My Homework account. We've given ‘power’ back to parents. They can now take a more proactive role in driving homework prioritisation, keeping tabs on homework without being intrusive.
